and i'm talking BLUE? no "well, could be blue, but it's a greenish/blue egg"....i'm looking for a no-doubt-about-it-blue-egg? when i go into the auctions or on ebay, some eggs look wonderful! but i ordered some off ebay in january and they looked blue in the pictures, but when i got them, they were no different then my light sage green eggs that my EE lays. i was so disappointed! i will buy some off of whoever is selling the real deal.

I have gotten eggs from here on BYC and other places that show some gorgeous blue eggs but every time I get them they are just average blue and when the pullets start laying it is no different than my hatchery EEs. I give up!

The Ameraucana EE's that we had, laid some nice sky blue eggs, their offspring laid blue, green or pink eggs. No rym nor reason to it.

i DID pray though, after i ordered my EEs from Meyer that God would help the packers pick the blue egg layers for me! i should have faith in my prayer and know that God is involved in my life and wants me to have a blue egg layer!

I have some eggs in the bator now that are the product of an Easter egger breeding project to enhance a light blue egg color. These eggs themselves are a pretty pale blue. There is a white leghorn somewhere in the ancestry, and the rest of the ancestry is pure ameraucana... the leghorn was used to breed-out any "brown" that gets onto the egg that causes blue eggs to be green. I am not sure I understand all the genetic crap that was explained to me, but these eggs are blue & the offspring are crossed with a true blue-egged ameraucana roo so they should all lay blue eggs with no green tint.

It's a project, though, so I got the eggs really cheap. I got 18 of them for $12. If you were closer, I'd give you a couple of the babies.

wow!! i sure wish i was closer!!! as i was reading your post, i was excited as i read it! thinking you had some hatching eggs for sale! lol!! it's really awesome what you're doing! i just know that if i lived out in the country i would breed chickens for sure! i just love them so much! and i love so many breeds!! i love the people who breed for the look of the bird, as well as those who breed for egg color (or both). Good luck in your project!!
